Cure For Obesity?

Dear President Obama,

If you haven’t noticed, we’re all fat.

This country is pretty lazy when it comes to taking care of ourselves. Too lazy to learn how to eat right. Too lazy to eat right after we’ve learned how to. Too lazy to change habits and ignore propaganda and not resist our addictions….to sugar. Too lazy to take that distant parking spot. Too lazy to take the stairs.

Speaking of stairs, I think it would be a wise and popular initiative if you were to replace all public staircases in this grand country with piano keys.

Maybe you could find an American company that makes the music pads, and hire some of those people that make up the 10% of the population that is unemployed to install them.

Better yet, if we could also follow in the Swedes example and have public health care (yeah I know, you’re working on it) and public child care, that would be saa-weet!

Thank you from your supporter,

Mrs. Anderson

    This is such a cool idea. Thanks for sharing, Em.

    Perhaps we could have the federal government place an additional tax on everyone not using the stairs to help pay for their health care. Perhaps a toll booth…….wow, think of the possibilities to create new jobs……. :>)

    Of course, it had to be the Swedes!

    Stockholm gets the piano stairs and Columbus gets the Palin book-signing crowd. Yeah, that’s fair.
